Mister Bookseller – Superb Short Illustrated Story

This is truly like finding a hidden gem.

Mister Bookseller

Mister Bookseller is a very touching, beautifully illustrated comic book by Darko Macan, an award-winning  Croatian author and illustrator, and Tihomir Celanovic.

The premise looks deceptively simple in the beginning. An old man visits a bookseller, who, it turns out, has a copy of every book in the world – or does he ?

The epiphany moment experienced by the old man in the comic book rivals the one experienced by Anton Ego ( the dreaded food critic) in  Ratatouille. Funnily enough, both of them share the same first name. Hmmm. Food for thought ?
